Chorlton Mills :: Shared Description

Regarded as the second most important grouping of early cotton spinning mills in Manchester after those in Ancoats, the Chorlton Mills complex was made up of three multi-storey mills built in stages in 1814, 1818 and 1845 in an area bounded by Cambridge Street, Oxford Road, Chester Street and the River Medlock, to the south and south-west of what is now Oxford Road railway station.

The complex included mills and associated engine house and a basement level gas works. The steel strapped chimney was added in 1853.
